Professional Background
This is my third year teaching in a school setting and my first year at Our Lady of Good Counsel. I have previous experience teaching Middle School English and Literature. During my summers off, I have enjoyed tutoring, also coaching softball and basketball for my town recreation. I am originally from New Jersey, I feel very blessed and honored to begin teaching for the Diocese of Arlington.

Faith in Action
I am a practicing Catholic from a young age. I strive to instill the love of God and kindness through my teachings of the Bible to all my students.

Favorite Teaching Moment
My favorite teaching moment is every September, where I am given a new opportunity each year to meet my new students and watch us all grow together as a class throughout the year. I stumbled across a quote once that stated “I call my students ‘my kids’ because in our year together, they aren’t just kids on my class list they become a part of my heart.” I’ve used this as my mantra because it is my belief that as a teacher I should always strive to bring love, kindness, and long- lasting knowledge to all my students.

Favorite Food
I love Italian, tacos and Chick-fil -A.

Favorite Activity Outside of School
I love reading, spending time with my family, attending concerts, and sporting events.

Fun Fact About Me
I am an animal lover, I have two German Shepherd puppies named Nala and Turbo. I am sports lover, especially football. I also enjoy baking for my family and friends!
